So last week when I was trying to think of another DIY to add to our Kid’s Spring Style and Geo Floral Easter Party, DIY gold foil Easter eggs came to mind. First though, those will be super simple. Reality, gold foil is a pain to work with. Just wanted to get that out there, you know if you are having those, this is going to be easy thoughts. Also I am sure that I am not the first person to write this post…. and that is another mistake I might add… why did I not google how to do it by someone else? I tried MULTIPLE ways to get the foil to stick and then after like the fifth try, voila! It worked!

I made these eggs specifically for the little DIY Baby Bird Nests that I made a few days before. I thought they would be perfect inside the nests scattered amongst the table. Well, my mom brain forget the nests at home the day of the shoot, but they still looked great scattered within the floral table runner created by Sequel Events.

DIY Gold Foil Easter Eggs

Supplies

  • Hard boiled Eggs (or faux eggs)
  • Gold Foil (mine is from Michael’s with a 40% off coupon, whoop! If you don’t already know this they always have coupons online to save $$)
  • Paint Brush
  • Liquid Clear/White Glue

Directions

  1. Use your paint brush to paint on glue to your eggs. Cover the areas that you want the gold foil to stick to.
  2. Roll the glued on areas of the egg directly onto the gold foil. This will have large pieces and smaller pieces on your egg.
  3. Once the amount of gold foil that you want is on your egg, use your paint brush to manipulate the foil.
  4. You can softly stroke more glue on top of the foil very gently if you want the gold to stay in larger pieces. If you prefer the gold foil to be broken up into smaller pieces poke the foil with the end of your brush to break it apart. More glue will have the foil move around easier.
  5. To fill in spots that didn’t collect foil dab your paintbrush onto the gold foil sheet to collect small pieces to paste on.
  6. Let dry on a drying rack (not a hand towel, trust me on this one).

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

Thanks again @thepieshoppe & @sumacridgewine for having us come create the other night. That’s my kinda date night. Thanks for the snap @gracefullyglamblog
  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀

PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?
.
I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
  • We donut want to leave @pacificsands today, but it’s time to roll out.

  • I opened up the new My Only Bottle Loop from @sodastreamcanada and the girls were PUMPED. Sophie suggested bringing our SodaStream FIZZI to school so that she can make sparkling water there (see stories) and I suggested that we make it at home in her new My Only Bottle Loop and she can bring it with her. The 500mL bottle is the perfect size for traveling to and from school, just grab your sparkling water bottle by the loop and scoot out the door. ⁠

PS the My Only Bottle is also dishwasher safe (tell me I’m not the only one excited about this!) and available online at sodastream.ca or at your local London Drugs retailer ⁠
